What is Dentofacial Orthopedics?
The name can be quite a mouthful, but the concept is actually simpler than you’d think. When the bones responsible for holding teeth are not in their correct positions, the teeth and bite will never be quite straight. So, dentofacial orthopedics essentially works to stimulate growth of one of the jawbones to make the bite even. Whether you have a pronounced overbite, underbite, or other malocclusion, this approach can help us solve many aesthetic concerns beyond the scope of traditional orthodontics. It also saves patients from needing more invasive procedures that carry long-term side effects and high costs.
